It's Day 6 of #MeatlessMarch and I'm doing…surprisingly well! I haven't passed by a Chick-fil-A yet, so I haven't had any serious meat cravings. Plus, I've been enjoying the challenge of creating and cooking vegetarian & pescatarian lunches and dinners. My first attempt at a veggie dinner was making black bean burgers, and I loved them!
I mixed black beans, spinach, corn, white onions, mushrooms, an egg, and black pepper and basil in a bowl and formed it into small "patties." Then, I added a slice of pepper jack cheese and I baked them for 10ish minutes in the over.
I then topped them with peach mango salsa and slices of avocado, and put it inside a fat free tortilla/wrap.
It was amazing…already one of my favorite veggie dishes.
I cooked some spinach + radishes, mushrooms, & onion to go with my black bean burger.
spinach + radishes, mushrooms, & onion
Another day I cooked spinach, radishes, onions, mushrooms, and carrots in a skillet with olive oil
And I boiled some tomato penne noodles
Then I combined the skillet veggies with the pasta + mango salsa
Another delicious dish!
All so tasty and inexpensive ingredients! I'm excited to keep creating new meals and learning more about the pescatarian & vegetarian life. A big thanks to my meatless friends who have been so helpful and encouraging this week :)
I think I will continue my fast of meat through the Lenten Season.
Are you giving up anything for Lent?
